Yes, if you have a Firewire Hard drive or hub with two Firewire ports, then the Duet can be connected to the 2nd Firewire port on that device.
Ensemble is compatible with Pro Tools 9 and up. It is not compatible with Pro Tools 8 and lower, or Pro Tools LE. Ensemble can be connected digitally to Avid hardware to work with earlier versions of Pro Tools.

No. Duet 2, the original ONE , Duet FireWire, Symphony I/O and Ensemble are Mac only products and are not supported with iPad, iPhone, or iPod Touch. They simply were not designed with the hardware needed to properly work with these iOS devices. At the time they were developed, the technology required was not available.
Duet for iPad & Mac, ONE for iPad & Mac and Quartet for iPad & Mac were designed specifically for iOS and Mac connectivity.
This required extensive circuit redesign and development to met these criteria:
- iOS device charging – These products charge iPad (or iOS device) when in use
- Direct digital connection meeting Apple’s MFi standards
- Native software control with Apogee Maestro for iOS
- Apogee sound quality without compromise – (This required adequate power)
These features make Duet for iPad & Mac, ONE for iPad & Mac and Quartet for iPad & Mac truly professional devices designed for iOS recording.
Other audio interfaces without this technology (including Apogee products) can be adapted to connect via Camera kit to iOS devices but they do not offer the same professional performance and features customers should expect from a pro interface. Examples of these professional features include the ability to charge the iPad, software control of the hardware, and Apple’s MFi certification.
With the latest firmware update (v. 3.00), any X-HD equipped Apogee interface (X-Series or Rosetta Series) emulate an Avid HD I/O interface. This provides connectivity to Avid’s Pro Tools HDX PCIe system and compatibility with Pro Tools HD 10 and 11.
For more info, please see the X-HD Version 3.00 Release Notes.
